Hon. Fleming- G. dußignon. chairman of
the State Demorratio Executive Commit
tee, wa* asked bv a representative of the
Morning News yesterday, as to his posi
tion on the subject of the local option
plank. that it it- said an attempt will be
made to introduce and have incorporated
In the platform of the Siato Convention.
Mr. dußignon was exceedingly reticent
on the subject. He said that for many
weeks he had been away from the state,
and had been able to permit his mind, but
the most casual survey of this or any
other question, affecting political matters
in which he was interested. The state of
his health, and h?s distance from the scene
of active operations in this state h ad com
pelled him to remain o quiescent £*pcet:i
tor of all that transpired.
The local option plank in the state plat
form is regarded merely a question of
parly expediency It will probably he
adopted, and incorporated, should the
wiser heads of the convention deem this
the wiser plan, and rejected and cast
aside should it be determined that only
folly would dictate its adoption. The
adoption or rejection of th plank is
chough! to be almost entirely a question
Bo thc-ught Chairman dußignon. *1 have
only recently returned from ihe> North,"
he saii. “and it lias i>*-n impossible for
me 10 give the matter anything mor<*
than the most casual consideration. It
teems to me that it is one th at should
demand the most careful and deliberate
attention of every meinbtr of the commit
tee, and 1 have no doubt that it will re
ceive this attention when the commitUa
meets on Wednesday. 1 don't feel that u
would he wise foi nve io express an opin
ion on the subject until I have had turn*
and opportunity to make .i thorough and
complete investigation and reach ad -
vision in accordance w ith its important*-."
“1 don't know.” said Mr. dußignon.
“that the matter will he acted upon ai
all during the session of the com mi dee.
It is one of those questions that are diffi
cult of accurate determination and what
course the committee will dcicrridu*' io
follow is more than J am able to predi t.
lam sure, however, that it will lie In ac
cordance with best inic’ests of th
party of the state.”
“It seems to tne that the question is
one of sufficient importance to receive th#.
most careful consideration of eve. y mem
ber of the committee who has at heart ti t*
interests of the parry and the state, and
I bave no doubt that it will rec<*.\> the

Chairman dußignon said that at the
last session of the State Executive Com
mittee, n committee from the Prohibi
tion party of the state appeared before
It and asked to have the question of
prohibition or local option submitted to.
the voters of the state at the- Demo
cratic primary. The suggestion to this
effect was supported by many plausibS
arguments, hut the committee decided
that it had no jurisdiction in the mattei
and that its submission of the question
to the voters of tlie state would be with
out authority. It is very possible tha;
the same solution of the difficulty will
Occur to the members of the committee
when the matter is again presented in
Its new' form and that they v ill follow
the course that prudence and wis !ora

was brought to bar in Charleston to pre
vent the removal of Knoop, Freichs &
Cos., the house doing the largest export
ing business of any cotton firm in
Charleston, and its removal naturally
meaning a serious loss of business to that
port and a corresponding gain for Sa*
vannah. The removal is said to be due
to the fact that the Carolina cotton mills
now consume such a large proportion of
tiie crop of that state that the firm is
no Ion;• er able to secure sufficient cotton
at Chari* ston to meet the demands of i~
customers. As Savannah draws cotton
from half n dozen states, the firm will

The motto of our order, “Friendship.

our members enjoyed the gfeat privilege

in Georgia, exhibited that modesty and
fervent zeal characteristic of the true

and charity for nil mankind, and he has
nourished by iiis prayers and his care the
tree of our Holy Church which was plant
ed years before in this diocese. We
heartily congratulate Bishop Kelley on
the distinguished honor conferred upon
him, pledge him our unswerving fideli y
and active support in the furtherance of

If our society is ever going to reach

see it occupy, we must work with un
abated vigor till every man in Georgia
possessing the necessary qualitiatlons for

our officers must make every reasonable
effort to extend our beneficent influences.
The rank and file can be depended upon

LOVE OF MEN AND WOMEN.
nev. Arthna J. Smith Preached Last
Night on nn Innsual Theme.
Rev. Arthur J. Smith preached another
: sermon to young women ac the First
Presbyterian Church last night. His sub
j'-ct was “Love,” and the text was drawn
from First Samuel, eighteen chapter and
tenth verse: “Michal, Saul’s daughter,
| loved David.** **
i In his introduction Mr. Smith spoke of
! David's sudden popularity after slaying
the giant of Gath, and his induction into
King Saul's family. He spoke of the
great friendship that sprang up between
Johnathan and David, and said it w’as
i but natural for Michal to love the hero,
i though her love was not hero worship.
Mr. Smith then proceeded to tell what
love i&. He said it is the soul of the
moral universe. It is life. “Life is but
the past tense of love. We live as W'e
love." It is divine, for it Is God, and
“God is love.’’
“Love is the power that makes the
moral universe move. Men and womtn
will do almost anything for love. The
lower of love cannot be estimated. The
tilings it will not do are unknown to marf.
for it oftimes seems to do the impossi
ble Love is the heat of the moral universe,
li melts frozen hearts and Icy natures.
It is the passion that burns within the
hoort with a holy glow'. Women love
stronger and longer than men. It seema
to be their nature. There, are so many'
claimants for a man’s love in the world.
W ealth, honor and fame are rivals.”
"There were several reasons,” the
speaker said, “why’ Michal loved David.
One was the strong friendship that exist
ed between her brother and David. Any
girl can trust the man her brother loves
if her brother is a true man. His cournge
won her admiration and more. Her love
was not only hero worship, as she after
ward proved. What he was In himself
the shepherd hoy' with poetic nature and
the ability to sing and play, attracted her.
She evidently discovered th© deep spirit
ual nature of David.
“She proved her love for him by giving
herself to him. by clinging to him and by
risking her life for him. But he, by one
a i. caused her love to change to hatred.
Here Mr. Smith warned th© men pres
ent >aying that they could by pome overt
act cause the women who love to deppls©
and hate them. In closing Mr. Smith gave
some suggestions to the young men who
were present about the bestowal of their
love. He said no young woman should
give her love to a man without giving
• areful thought to the matter. Girls, too,
often let their hearts run away with their
heads. She ought also to thoroughly in
vesiigale the character of the claimant
of her love. She should seek her father s
aid and also that of her brother, if she
has one. She should also make the mat
t* r a subject of earnest prayer. The pow
er to love is God’s gift to her, and she
should not exercise that pow'er without
asking God’s guidance.

ISLAND TO RE MOVXTED.
onld Re an Interenting Attraction
in One of the Until Street Squares.
•The Hoik From Which They Were
Taken Relieved to Re That of the
Rritlnh Man-oMVnr Rose \\ hich
Wa* Nuuk by the Continental
Army and the French.
The two old carronades that -were fish
ed up from the Savannah river by the
dredge Babcock, w'hile the deepening pro
cess for the Hutchinson’s Island termi
nals was in progress, will probably be
mounted in some conspicuous point in the
city. That this disposition will be made of
them has not been determined upon, but
it i© knoi/n that they will not leave Sa
After the old guns were dug up months
ago, there was some correspondence with
the Smithsonian Institution in regard ;o
them-, but the Smithsonian will not get
the relics, and it seems probable that they
will grace some spot in Savannah. Prop
erly mounted and inscribed with their
history, and the manner and date of their
recovery, the guns would prove objects of
no little interest, and would be attrac
tions for one of the public squares.
It is believed the hulk from which the
guns were recovered, was the wreck of
the British man-o’-war Rose, which was
sunk by the Continentals, and trie Freneu.
The exact location of the wreck could not
be ascertained from the historical ac
counts. but it is presumed that the hulk
demolished by the dredging force, was oil
that was left of I lie British war vessel.
This belief is strengthened by the fact
that the carronades are of the type that
prevailed about that period.
The disposition of the guns has not
yet been brought before the city author-*
ties, but it is presumed the relics woulcr
be gladly received and mounted for the
eake of their history, if this be as out
lined. The guns are still on Hutchinson’s
Island, hut it is not thought the Georgia
and Alabama officials would object to the
cily taking charge of them. The manner
of their resurrection might be recorded
upon tlie guns.
Among the many relics that wore re
covered by th*- dredge were buttons that
b ar the numbers of British regiments,
known to have been posted here during
the Revolution. Mr \\ .% W. Hegeman.
who was awarded the contract for the
dredging and the wharf work, has three
of the buttons. They b ar the numbers
76. 41 and 63, and heraldrie devices that
show them to have been worn by Hng
-Ish soldiers. Mr. Hegeman prizes the
buttons as relics and as mementoes of
his stay in Savannah.
The work on the inland terminals has
been almost eompleted Only a ft w' fin
ishing touches of dredging and pile dr.v
ing remain. These Mr. Hegeman will
compe'e within the month. Oh July 1
the Georgia and Alabama will begin the
operation of the terminals.
The cutting away of 'the hanks tpn the
island side of the river has left the
po nt. opposite Jefferson street more
prominent than ever, and it is an ugly
feature In the river topography. Atten
tion has been called to the point, and it
has hern suggested that it would be wise
to cut it away. It is sai<F its effect now
will be to sweep the current against the
south shore, filling in and shoaling the

Don’t Kill Black Snake©.
From the Lebanon Enterprise.
The reporter was a<tvieed not to kill a
black snake under any circumstances. An
old. honest, reliable man explained thus:
“Only a few' days ego I saw a black racer
whizzing around In a circle, his flaming
eyes distended, his attention seemed riv
eted oa something not far away. I ad
vanced, and to mv astonishment I saw
■ i large rattlesnake coiled up in beitle
array. The black snake continued his
circuits, getting a little nearer its victim
each time. After ten or fifteen minutes
the rattlesnake dropped his head on the
ground. Almost instantaneously the
black snake pounced upon its victim.
After securely fastening his teeth in the
back of the rattlesnake’s head, he began
his deadly coiling. Within five minutes
that rattlesnake was dead; tso don’t kill
a black snake.’’ The color came in the
old gentleman’s face, as he was relating
the above, and he said; “Boys, black
snakes are game, but they won’t hurt you,
for I had one for a pet for four years and
because my old woman woke up one
right and found the snake in bed she
raised an awful fuss and killed it.”
